You need some specular maps to change randomly the glossiness of the surface.

At the moment I'm learning using the old Lightwave 5 videos that are available on the EAB File Server.
Well, biggest disadvantage if you work from home is the transfer of data from and to you. Even with a really fast internet connections it could be no fun at all. On the other hand if you do complete projects with your clients than this wouldn't be an issue as you only submit final renderings as JPGs or videos as mp4s. If you want to work for advertsing agencies I think it would be better to use C4D, Maya or 3DSMax. But there are always companies around which uses LightWave (I do). When it comes down to rendering you could use services like rebus or garagefarm. So no need for an own renderfarm. Well if you are skilled enough go out and make contacts to companies which are in need of some nice CGI
